I found a copy of the movie Hardbodies in the bargain bin last week and remembered it was a bad movie for acting and plot, but we loved it when it came out in the Infantry because it had a lot of pretty girls in swimsuits. And then it struck me that this was more than 3o years ago. The 90's were just 3 or 4 years ago? What happened to my 80's?

Hardbodies, that's the one about converting pewter miniatures right?

Nope- not even that much plot! Basically a lot of shots of a beach in California, young guy tries to teach old guys how to pick up chicks (who are so vapid and desperate that they fall for it)- typically early 80's T&A flick. _Very_ popular with a barracks full of GI's with the 'just got out of prison' haircut at a base near a small town that hates them. Closest most of us ever got to a pretty girl was the TV screen, and 'VCRs' were the newest thing!

Hard bodies is a classic up there with Hot Resort and Bikini Carwash Company 2.

So... just out of curiosity, any way to improve the BS of a fortification? Stragies, psychics, orders, whatever?

I've decided Games Workshop rules are like the weather in New England - if you don't like them, just wait a little while, they'll change. Speaking of old time, there was a time when I thought it worth the trouble to memorize them all.

Huge Bastion looks good!

Now that the frame is done I have plans for it, BIG plans.

Useful rules would be nice though

Little bunker is more or less done.



And biggie is waiting for a shapeways order.



Biggie's not glued yet but more or less fits, I may have to squeeze some green stuff into the gaps.

The way you dealt with the gap between the two pieces is great! It really looks like it was an intended component of the kit.

Motorpool looking good. If it gets too big you'll need to build a parking and repair bay for them....


That cage looks interesting, there's a couple of the deep cuts pieces that look useful

The earlier movie discussion really makes me wonder what you want Caged or Chained. Is it Heat?

The tanks are looking cool. But space cops need space bikes. Are you going to convert GSC bikes or scout bikes?

Textured bases are my new favorite thing in the multiverse. Seriously, I have not even tried to base an army in ten years, and I just did 60 models in a night.



The cages at $5 a pop will make nice scatter terrain or something to put behind a truck. Maybe hang from the Fortress Precinct? Throw some flagellents in and bob's your uncle.

Just started watching the 1984 version of Nineteen Eighty Four, I imagine Imperial Law as looking like that one paper but Brazil in practice.

As for bikes...

The only good rules I might use are Death Riders, in which case I'd use Empire Outriders once of my favorite kits of all time.

But I'll have to take a look when the bikes come out.

SoCal, USA!

Those bases are not unlike the ones that Studio McVey used for Sedition Wars.

For a while, that box was clearancing under $20. Trash all of the game models and print, and just keep the bases and dice, and you came out ahead!
